Abstract

We show that isolated subfemtosecond, extreme ultraviolet (XUV) pulses can be generated via harmonic generation in argon by few-cycle infrared pulses formed through filamentation-induced self-compression in neon. Our calculations show that the time structure of the XUV pulses depends sensitively on both the amplitude and the phase modulation that are induced in the driving pulse during the self-compression process.

Fig. 1

(a) Propagation dynamics of laser pulse during filamentation. Beam width (dashed curve, right axis) and pulse duration (solid curve, left axis) are shown versus propagation length z. (b) Laser pulse time profile at the point of maximum compression, z = 130 cm . This pulse is used to generate harmonics in the subsequent step. (c) Time profile of 40 eV XUV radiation, produced via HHG in a 1 mm argon gas cell.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Radially integrated harmonic spectra at the end of the argon gas, driven by laser pulses extracted at z = 110 (a), 120 (b), and 130 (c) cm. The spectral ranges synthesizing the XUV pulses are indicated.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

On-axis time structure of the driving field intensity and frequency (dashed and dotted curves) extracted at z = 110 cm (a), 120 cm (b), and 130 cm (c). The thin solid lines show the resulting “instantaneous” harmonic cutoff energies. Radially integrated XUV time profiles (in arbitrary units) at the end of the argon gas are shown by thick solid curves. The spectral ranges synthesizing the XUV pulses are indicated.
